Specifically, passage makes permanent the additional 50% depreciation allowance (bonus depreciation) for qualified property placed in service after Dec. 31, 2013. It also modifies the definition of "qualified property" to include qualified retail improvement property. It increases by $8,000 (with an annual inflation adjustment after 2014) the maximum allowable depreciation deduction for a passenger automobile (i.e., any four-wheeled vehicle that is manufactured primarily for use on public streets, roads, and highways and is rated at 6,000 pounds unloaded gross vehicle weight or less). The Senate confirmed former San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro to be Secretary of Housing and Urban Development and outgoing HUB Secretary Shaun Donovan as Director of the Office of Management and Budget. more
